Bolanos Figure 

100 BC to 250 AD

6 1/4″ tall by 4 3/4″ wide

A gorgeous Bolanos figure from Jalisco, Mexico. This figure is incredibly rare and looks very similar to a Chinesco piece. The examples such as this one have finer painting and different coloring as you can see here.

A male is depicted in the seated position with his arms to his knees. He is wearing a poncho and a large headdress. The split paint on it represents the duality in life. The figure is painted with fine line detailing, which includes eyelashes. The deep red and black lines look amazing against the cream slip. 

Wonderful manganese deposits attest to its ancient age. 

Ex James Tait Goodrich collection from Hudson on the Bay, New York. Acquired in the 1980s. Mr Goodrich was a world renown surgeon.
